Cowell Responds to RageCampaign

2009-12-10 by Conor | 18 Comments
The facebook-led campaign to put Rage Against The Machine's "Killing in The Name" at Britain's infamous Christmas number 1 spot has hit the media circus and even has spurred Simon Cowell to comment on the matter:

A particularly aggravated Cowell stated: "If there's a campaign, and I think the campaign's aimed directly at me, it's stupid. Me having a No 1 record at Christmas is not going to change my life particularly. I think it's quite a cynical campaign geared at me that is actually going to spoil the party for these three."

Luckily to save the music generation having to read their news, celebrated DJ Zane Low compared a quick re-mix of Cowell's statement with the controversial song!

I think he's missing the point, but that's hardly surprising. Someone should clean this post up.

Cowell's right, go on that group and it's just a load of pissed of people talking about "fighting the corporate forces" etc, load of shit.

Yeah, funny how a lot of people overlook that fact that RATM were on a major label and became
extremely wealthy by repeating the same fight the power slogans in every album. Fuck the NME though,
that's the worst piece of shit excuse for music journalism ever.

Won't work and shouldn't.

No one in the X Factor is worthy of it and neither are RATM.

I backed the Jeff Buckley campaign but will steer well clear of this

Sorry about the poor spelling and cheers for the corrections.

Anyway yeah more news outlets are backing this every day even the usually pop-culture restrained Guardian

I hope it at least gets Top 5, although I doubt it'll get Number 1, after all about 8 Million people watch the x-factor and if even half of them buy the single...yeah

at first I thought that this was a campaign for people who always rage...Cowell seemed a fitting respondent.

RATM is a joke. They go from RRAAAHH FUCK YOU ESTABLISHMENT to WTF MAN WE DIDN'T WIN A VMA WTF

In all fairness though, they were better than Limp Bizkit

RATM are a gimmick that rich white kids buy into.

Probably some poor ones too.
